      shove 25 bb w JTo vs steal

      I think it would be better to check shove but I did not think about that in game.

      Hi Speed,

      Preflop: We can 3-bet larger versus this shorter fish because we can expect plenty of calls and we can set stacks better (and he can call more with a wide range).

      I agree with ck/shoving flop if villain is aggro and bets a lot.

      As played we need 34% equity and even against pairs we have roughly 6 outs for ~24% equity plus a backdoor straight. If he shoves worse Ax or draws we are doing better so we will be at least around break even.

      I was thinking oposite - I should 3bet smaller to have more room to play postflop vs shortstack :)
